    I can damn sure tell you there have been a number of times I wished I had one...especially when making long casts on fast moving water. And now that I see just how versatile they are... all I need is the right color so as not to clash with my new puffy jacket :D.

    Did anyone notice that there are only 9 beers in the basket. They come in 6 and 12 packs. What happened to the other three?

    Inquiring minds want to know.

    I thought those things were made for packing beer,I thought you were suppose to fill them with beer and wade in upto your waist to keep the beer cold. I never thought about coiling your line in one!!

    Mine has an obsolete bottle opener mounted on the side.

    These new fangled twist off and pop tops are the nuts.

    My bad. I was under the impression you wanted to catch fish.
